Cepton, Dataspeed partner to bring lidar technologies to autonomous vehicle developers



Cepton Technologies Inc. has partnered with autonomous vehicle (AV) technology provider Dataspeed Inc. to bring its high resolution, long-range and compact lidar technologies to AV developers.

The partnership will result in Dataspeed’s customers now having access to Cepton lidar technology for the development and deployment of autonomous applications.

“Dataspeed is a leading provider of by-wire systems with worldwide installations,” says Mitch Hourtienne, Cepton director of Business Development.

“Our partnership will make it easy for the global community to develop advanced perception capabilities for the next generation of autonomous vehicles.”

Thanks to their compact design, Cepton’s lidar sensors can be integrated directly into the body of a vehicle, which provides Dataspeed’s customers with advanced 3D perception without impacting a vehicle’s design.

Cepton notes that its lidar is built on the company’s patented Micro Motion Technology (MMT) platform, delivering “unrivaled performance and resolution at a low cost,” the company says.

Cepton's lidar technologies provide 3D perception with a range of 200 meters and a 120-degree field of view. These capabilities power all levels of autonomous applications at an accessible price point, according to Cepton.
